Checking to date and get possible range in value on a gun given to me by my grandfather who passed away 7 years ago. Believed to be Navy not Army since trigger is blue. Patent dates show Aug 5, 84; Nov 6, 88; Mar 5, 95. My guess is it was made in 1895 based on serial #. Small chip on bottom of original grip. All original parts. Has Colt emblem with horse figure and 1892. Chamber release has 814 stamp.

hello,,your barrel date places your pistol as being in the new army and navy model 1892 da revolver ,, these were basically the same as the earlier model 1889 with the addition of an improved cylinder locking system,,colt made 291,000 of this model between 1892-1907,,the serial number is listed as being made in 1895 but to determine if it is actually a army or navy model i can't really tell you exactly because both were the same pistol from what i have read ,,values for either army or navy are the same according to the standard catalog of military firearms 4th edition,,and the book values them at 750 poor ,,1000 fair,,1500 good and 2500 vg,,

Appreciate it very much. I'm told I shouldn't risk ruining the gun by purchasing and firing old ammo from it. You feel the same?

i'd say yes and no,,if your gonna keep it then why not shoot it i beleive you can still find quality ammo for it ,,if your thinking about selling it i wouldn't ,,just because the less it's fired the better,,but if in good condition,,theres no reason with proper ammo why ya shouldn't enjoy it ,,

Couple points here. First, you are responding to a years old thread. Second issue is that buying and selling are prohibited on this board.

Not a problem. I suggest you try either GunBroker.com or GunAuction.com. Both are reputable online firearm auction sites.
